Of late, I have been contacted by few clients who have been facing issues with SQL startup failure after applying patch to SQL Server instance. This blog is an outcome of one such assistance provided. Here is a blog post where I discuss script level upgrade for database master fails.
Received an email “Need your urgent help On Demand, our MSDB Database has grown too big and we need help to check our sysmail_mailitems table. We are also facing performance issues.” I have been an independent consultant for a while and one of the services I provide is “On Demand (50 minutes)” service. This service is very helpful for organizations who are in need immediate help with their performance tuning issue. Though, I have set working ours for my regular clients, every single day, I keep two hours available for this particular offering. This way, I can make sure that anyone who urgently needs my help, can avail the same.
